Everyone has some favorite browser add on. I have also some best add on that I am currently using. here is the list of all add-on that i am using in my computer now. Check that if you are missing anything. Also tell me what add on you are using. These browser add on covers mainly my SEO and productivity site.
Best Google Chrome Extensions
According to Alphabet my Favorite Google Chrome Add-on’s are:
1. Adblock for Pirate Bay
Piratebay is one of my mostly used browser. But it really anoying getting pop up ads. This this extension removes banner, pop-up, and pop-under ads on TPB only. There are also other great extensions such as AdBlock and Adblock Plus that block banner-type ads but do not block pop-unders, and it may be a good idea to use one of those in combination with this extension.
2. Adblock Plus
Another great plugin to block all kind of Ads in the website. Not helpful for the Pop up though. But great to block flash ads, Adsense ads, Chitika etc. These ads are really annoying sometimes. Adblock Plus is the world’s most popular browser extension, and is used by millions of users worldwide. It is a community-driven open source project, and hundreds of volunteers are contributing to the success of Adblock Plus to make sure that all annoying ads are automatically blocked.
3. Awesome Screenshot
Great Extensions to capture instantly and share the captured image with your friends. I mainly use it to show somethings to my frinds as it will automatically upload the screen shot that you take and it will give you the link of your screen shot. You can also Annotate & Edit the image some extent. As now it supports Google Drive, you can store the image in Google Drive.
4. Pop Block Pro
This is not necessary for ordinary users. It is a most popular Firefox developer extensions available in Chrome. The most useful feature in this plugin is to get the current color of any web page.
6. Disconnect Search
With this add on you can search in Google privately. Not only in Google in all your favourite search engine. Search engines save your searches, which is used later to show ads, where ever you visit. When you click a result link, the site may see your search terms. Your ISP can also see your search terms. This Disconnect Search add on will prevent these and protect your online privacy.
7. goo.gl URL Shortener

10. Imgur Uploader
Do you have Imgur account? If the answer is Yes, you can store image in your Imgur account with one click function with this add-on. Or if you dont want to open account in imgur, you can still use this add-on. But it is better to open account in Imgur. Right-click uploading of images and screenshots to imgur, anonymously or to your imgur account.
Single most important add-on for me. I simply can’t remember all the user names and passwords that I have used. So it will store the user name and password for you. Its extremely useful add on. LastPass supports Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, Safari, and Opera as a browser extension and Opera Mini and more via Bookmarklets. I have installed this add on in all my browser. It allows you to make strong passwords easily. One Time Passwords, Screen Keyboard, Google Authenticator and Grid multi-factor help protect your account.
Simply Last Pass is a free online password manager and Form Filler that makes your web browsing easier and more secure.
Simply find out the nofollow and dofollow links. Mostly useful to make comment in websites. You don’t want to miss a dofollow site. This will give you the option to get the dofollow sites easily. It has the ability to disable or enable extension for custom websites. You dont want it in your own site or Facebook like site.
